X-Men: First Class recruits Mystique

The X-Men: First Class casting continues with gusto with Jennifer Lawrence signing on to play Mystique. The blue-skinned shapeshifter was excellently portrayed by Rebecca Romijn in the original X-Men trilogy, so Lawrence has a lot to live up to.

Lawrence joins a cast that so far includes James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Erik Lensher, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Lucas Till as Havoc, Caleb Landry Jones as Banshee, and Kevin Bacon in an unspecified villian role rumoured to be Mr. Sinister.

News on Cyclops and Jean Grey is expected soon so stay tuned.
